For the second year in a row, Mercedes has failed to provide a competitive enough car to Lewis Hamilton. The Brit has been chasing the elusive eighth championship title since 2021. However, he hasn’t been in a position to challenge for the title since 2021. The 2022 season was especially bad for Hamilton. However, as things stand, 2023 seems to be following the same route as 2022. To make things worse, Hamilton’s recent interview showcased a rare defeated side of him. A side because of which the fans are letting out their frustration on Mercedes.

The reason behind Hamilton’s misery is simple: the car! The W14 is still well below the expectations of the seven-time world champion and Mercedes is doing everything possible to change that. Until then, the Brit is suffering, and he revealed that in his interview with Sky Sports F1 after the qualifying in Jeddah.

When asked about his struggles, he said, “I struggled with the car in high speeds particularly. But I just don’t feel the car underneath me. I just don’t feel connected to this car and I can’t get it. I don’t really know what I’m going to do about that.”

This is a rare outlook from a usually upbeat and motivated Hamilton. Even though Hamilton pleaded his loyalty to the team, such interviews give rise to doubts and uncertainty.

The idea that Hamilton would leave the team if things don’t get better for him is something we all can agree with. With the contract extension still pending, and Hamilton’s interview, this idea might soon become reality.
